Weekend Stitching

While the promised rain didn't show up where we are the valley did get some showers downtown and on the West side. I guess we'll have to move across town if we want to see any weather. While I was very disappointed not to have the rain I did get some good stitching time in.

LK's BOO Club is no officially half finished. 6 of the 12 designs done and 6 more to go. I think they are getting cuter as they go and can't wait to see it all finished. Saturday I did "creepy" and love the little Owl in the tree.

This morning (very early) I put the last stitches in the "BOO" Needleroll

"BOO" Needleroll by StitchX from Silkweaver's
Stitched on 32 count Belfast Solo Linen by Silkweaver's
with "Carrie's Creations", "sassy strings", Dinky Dyes"
and DMC with a Spider Button
When I received this piece of fabric with my FOM I really didn't like it, in fact I thought it was UGLY! Then I got the Carrie's Threads in "Autumn Leaves" and the chart and when I was looking for a fabric in my stash this piece looked perfect. I am VERY happy with the outcome and it will be a great addition to my Halloween decor this year.
Today will be some brain dead stitching. I'm going to try to finish up all the backstitching on "Scream House" and then will have to pull out the volume of instructions to see what comes next. Not sure what my next Halloween start will be but with a finish I do get to start something new. I know I'll probably get 1 or 2 more designs done on BOO Club this week but not sure what else I'll pull out of the WIP basket.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week with LOTS of stitching time. I also want to Thank everyone for their comments and encouragement. I love to hear from all of you.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

The needleroll is great, and I really like the fabric, it was a good choice. BOO club is coming along nicely.

Spooktacular stitching Rene. I am looking forward to seeing Scream House. We have plenty rain here, I'll try to send some your way!

Kathy said...

The needleroll is gorgeous. And your LK is looking fabulous. You will definitly be done before Halloween at this rate.
Your Halloween shelf is going to be packed. Or are you creating a stitching wall now? :)

Great finish! I just love the LK Boo Club!! What do you do with the needlerolls? I have seen a few that you've stitched. Do you put them out as decorations for the various holidays? What about the one like the Pansy Sampler?

The needleroll turned out great, Rene. The LK piece looks good, too.

Very, very cute, Rene. I wish we would get trick-or-treaters out our way, but they like to stick to main in-town areas.
